“Good service but expensive for a short trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

A fun way to travel from downtown to Granville Island and Yaletown. Drivers are friendly and you can chat with other tourists while taking in the sights and sounds of the harbour.

“Convenient, inexpensive option for those without a car”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We took the city bus and aquabus ferry combo to get from Capilano Bridge to our hotel near Canada Place. it was a fun way to see parts of the city that you'd never see on a tour bus. Our city bus driver was very helpful in helping us make the correct change for the fare and telling us how to make the transfer to the aquabus. I recommend this to others as preferable alternative to the typical tour bus method of going to/from Capilano Bridge.

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Handy way to get around the area. We got the day pass and had a great time checking out Granville Island and the other sights. The staff was friendly and helpful and never had us waiting long for the next ferry. WELL WORTH THE SMALL COST!

“Quick Trip, Pretty View”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

This is a nice way to cross from Yaletown, English Bay to Granville Island or Kits Point or Science World-or to get a tour of False Creek. It has become quite expensive now and is not linked to the Translink Service. So as a nice to do for a visitor-yes. For locals, it gets pricey. Too bad because I used to enjoy using it to zip across to Yaletown frequently-I guess the cost of operating it just keeps growing. As a visitor to the city-it adds a nice way to cross the creek though so if someone asks I say go for it!
